Digital Darkroom for Photographers Workshop

Digital Darkroom for Photographers
August 23, 25, and 27 at 6-9pm

Basic photo editing and digital darkroom abilities have become part of the skills required of photographers. There are a lot of tasks and tools involved in the digital workflow but knowing how to crop or sharpen an image, fine tune settings such as exposure and saturation, or add a text can come handy for aspiring photographers.

All photographers, regardless of skill levels, have a lot to gain in learning the different digital darkroom processes such as transferring, reviewing, organizing, storing, editing, printing, and sharing. The Digital Darkroom for Photographers workshop tackles the digital workflow after the photo shoot. Topics include the following:

·What to do with the images after the photo shoot
·How to edit and fine tune images
·How to back up your images using a secured and reliable storage system
·How to present photos using different yet easy to use softwares
·How to create portfolios, presentations, and multimedia slideshows

Easy editing and fine-tuning steps will be demonstrated using Aperture 3 and other Mac softwares throughout the class. As a bonus topic, the lecturer-photographer will also show how an iPhone or an iPad can be a useful photographer’s tool in showcasing images. Participants will each be provided with a Mac computer and will be guided with step-by-step instructions.
